I don’t know about that. The door looks ajar backwards. Theirs a gap on the other side too. Maybe it’s a sliding door like a minivan, or it’s a mini falcon wing....or a big panel gap lolAFAIK that's the Roadster prototype interior steering wheel and monitor. But that earlier part of the video definitely seems like a perfectly-staged tiny reveal of Model Y prototype dimensions. It's too much of a statement having the back door ajar, to confirm they aren't FSDs like on Model X.
Some people on Electrek comment section seem to think that the car under the tarp is a partially assembled S refresh. I can't tell one way or another.
Matte black, yes. Musk said it make sense to make matte black since there was such a positive response of it on the reveal. Looks like we know why it hasn't appeared, they were saving it for the performance model.did i spy a stealth black performance model 3? at 37 seconds
There are 100 different things it could be, but nothing about it screams Model Y.
It looks like nothing more than a Model 3, possibly in some state of disassembly that they didn't want to show.
It's just there to represent R&D. With the cover though it becomes anything you want it to be.
